Nerve conduction studies and needle electromyography by themselves are not diagnostic. NCS/EMG studies are part of the tests and measurements of the physical therapist neuromuscular examination. All physical therapists should recognize the indication for and value the clinical utility of NCS/EMG studies. All physical therapists can assimilate data from an NCS/EMG report in order to assist in the patient evaluation and management. Common and uncommon peripheral nervous system conditions are discussed along with plan of care implications.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Grasp the utility of nerve conduction studies and needle electromyography (NCS/EMG)

2. Propose a referral for an NCS/EMG study when indicated

3. Assess data from an NCS/EMG study report as an aid to patient evaluation

4. Develop a plan of care based on the NCS/EMG study results
